Jeeze....thanks for the education..but did you ever ride one.....when they were new...

I worked in a dealership when that thing came out. Another one of willie boys abominations. When you uncrated a sporty in 78 there was a rebuild kit and a do not use as is sticker on the seat for the rear brakes. Worthless

Yes... one off the show room floor. I still ride one today but age (mine) usually has me riding more comfortable bikes (if you can call Ducatis more comfortable). As I said early on in this thread, they are a brute, not everyone's cup of tea. Whatever floats your boat.
